My latest film [ONE FINE MORNING] is closer to autobiography [than my first. The process is] never literally autobiographical, but the emotions are very close to mine, they come from my experience of life and my relationship with my father. But then there’s a lot of other stuff that comes in the process of writing. And at one point I reach a stage of almost vertigo and I’m not sure any more. I know about my feelings about certain things, like memories. It can start with memories but at a certain point I get confused. — Mia Hansen-Løve*
For the closing night of this year’s festival, Hansen-Løve returns to AFI Fest with ONE FINE MORNING, starring Léa Seydoux as a freelance translator and single mother negotiating a relationship with an old friend-turned-lover (Melvil Poupaud) while arranging for the care of her father (Pascal Greggory), who’s health is in severe decline.
Following the screening, Seydoux will join her director for a Q & A. See link below for details.
